Brick or Block paving can be used anywhere. They look great on drives and will provide many years of service. They can be used to great effect as paths, or patios, or mixed with other paving types to create a unique feature. They are a viable alternative to the more traditional asphalt or tarmac surfacing for estate roads, and let’s face it, they look a lot better than tarmacadam or plain concrete. They are even being used in areas of exceptional loads, such as airport taxi-ways, docks and freight yards.
The design possibilities enabled by the use of these relatively small paving units are limited only by your imagination. If you can “see it in your mind’s eye”, then it can probably be constructed from block or brick paving.
Elsek construction produces 90% of all their construction raw materials which reduces the costs of the houses down. To be able to fully appreciate these new level of technology lets take you through the production process of Cabro:
Elsek’s Cabro concrete blocks are typical made of cement,sand,gravel and water. The dry materials are mixed in specific proportions and mixture is put into moulds which are often vibrated when being filled to prevent air pockets being trapped hence making them stronger. Once the moulds are full the concrete is compacted from above to condense the mould, the moulded blocks are then left to dry in the open for one day in a process called setting.
Cabro concrete blocks when laid, form an ideal floor surface for go-downs, warehouses, factory floors, private drive-ways, housing estates, patios, car parks, pedestrian walks, shopping arcades, petrol stations or any light to heavy traffic areas. They are designed to be both attractive in appearance and highly durable.
Our Cabro concrete blocks are hard wearing, durable and maintenance free and can be laid out in a variety of patterns and mixtures of colours, thus allowing a wide scope of applications and designs, and are immediately available for use on completion of laying. We offer attractive prices and discounts rates.
Medium level maintenance is required once laid. Sweep occasionally to remove dust and detritus. If you find green algae building up on them, it can be safely removed by cleaning or, we are told, by swilling the area with Jeyes Fluid to kill the algae, which can then be swept away after a couple of days. Use of a pressure washer should be limited to very dirty pavements and no more than once a year, as the high-power water jet loosens jointing and can damage some pavings.
We recommend that block or brick paving be treated twice a year with a general weedkiller such as Sodium Chlorate, to deter mosses and weeds from setting up residence in the sand joints
